Cloudy golden colour with a huge white head. Yeasty. bready, and some sort of medicinal thing going in there. Taste has honey, some malts, PDG.

Big aroma of chewing gum, sending me to my childhood with memories of Star Wars trading cards. Aroma also strikes me of corn, like corn tortillas, like tamales. Lots of flavours reveals themselves as it warms, some pepper for example.

Bottle. Nose-man, Kevin nailed it: this smells EXACTLY like pepto-bismal-fruity and chalky. Taste is fruity and estery and bitter on the back end. Notes of bread and fig comer through. Every flavor in here is pleasant with the exception of the pepto taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy (honey)golden with a pretty, dense and quite stable head. Unfortunately the flavours don’t really live up to the appearance. The honey doesn’t shine through and what I get is a pretty ordinary, yeasty strong ale with a hint of spices. Not bad as such - just not in the usual Dupont league of quality. 290499

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Froma 750 ml bottle. The cork exploded and hit the ceiling as hard as any cork I can remember. Slightly hazy light gold color. Werid aroam of beef jerky and some fresh cow pie. There is also some pear and cinnamon behind that slight barnyard character. The taste is a little bit dry with some light honey. There are also some grassy notes with a little bit of bread. A strange beer, to say the least.

Wow! Great stuff. the Honey is very pronounced, but somehow balanced and not overpowering. Remarkable all around pale yellow, lots of lace, honey in the nose with some spice. delicious. Just came into the Bodega downtown La Crosse. served that a good temperature.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 25cl (BBE 12/2006)
Hazy orange, small firm off-white head. Typical saison-nose: spices, cardboard, wheat. Medium-bodied. Spicey, yeasty, wheaty. No honey found here. Dry hoppy aftertaste. Drinkable saison, but a bit too yeasty to being refreshing summer drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice beer. Golden orange cloudy, thick white head collapses to a smallish creamy white head. Big peppermit notes in the aroma with herbs, honey and yeast. Light lemon. Medium body and carbonation with a light oily feel in finish. Sweet flavors with notes of honey, yeast, pepper, spices and lightly sour. Overall a nice brew which I enjoyed.

Slight hint of honey and cloves in the aroma. Mild banana, clove and spice flavors. Low carbonation, very smooth and easy drinking. This was excellent on a hot summer day.
